24% Consider Al Gore Global Warming Expert March 24, 2007

Al Gore Former Vice President Al Gore (D) received a warm welcome on Capitol Hill last week for his testimony on the environment and Global Warming. However, while his film is now an Academy Award winner and he is a celebrity activist, just 24% of Americans consider Gore an expert on Global Warming. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of 1,000 adults found that 47% say he is not an expert on the topic (see crosstabs).

In fact, just 36% of Americans say that Gore knows what he is talking about when it comes to the environment and Global Warming. Thirty-one percent (31%) say he does not know what he is talking about while 33% are not sure. Women, by a 2-to-1 margin, say Gore knows what he is talking about. Men, by a similar margin, say he does not. (More Below)

Or the fact that he doesn't believe his own hype enough to change his living style.

"Women, by a 2-to-1 margin, say Gore knows what he is talking about."

These women really are too gullible to vote. They must have an IQ smaller than their bust size.

The Nashville Tennessean, Pravda on the Cumberland, printed a letter to the editor from one of the 24% percent yesterday. In effect it said: "no sane rational person can disagree about global warming, so boxer did the right thing in not allowing Inhofe to question gore at the senate hearing.

I think he's an expert at presenting his side of the story. Now, his side of the story being factual is another matter altogether.

I suppose tht means that 24% of Americans are certifiable nut jobs who would follow a false prophet into oblivion. That sounds about right.

The flip side of that is 24% are actually dumber than Al Gore, which is a really chilling number.

Wait a minute... If Men think one thing 2-to-1 and Women think the opposite 2-to-1, shouldn't the aggregate be roughly 50-50%?

Where was this poll taken, San Francisco? Is their some other sex that I don't know about messing up the numbers?

When I was a kid and I heard the old-timers lament that our country was headed down the tubes because they gave women the vote I just thought they were grouchy old bastards looking for something to complain about. Maybe those old coots were smarter than my then young smartass self.

In other words, what makes him any more knowledgeable
about climate then any junior high student in science class?
